It is freaking June! Freaking June – Queeny’s birthday soon, and mine too… Don’t forget!
I just wanted to tell you about my love, my one love.
The love that I crave about hour in and hour out – and it’s not my husband – no worries there.
He is there when I need a lift, there when I need to enjoy a quiet moment, there when I enjoy scrolling through Instagram and double tapping until I have cramp. There when I am dying of thirst, there when I can only think about going to the loo and there when I am freezing and need to be warmed up.
I know what you’re thinking… it’s an Aga. A nice 4 door, bottle green Aga. Oh, in my sweet, sweet, dreams. That is something that has made it’s way to the back of mind, only to come alive when enjoying Pinterest!
No, my love, my hero, my need, my one desire: is Twining’s Earl Grey Tea with a good fresh dollop of milk. Nothing more, nothing less. Preferably in a thin china mug.
And on that harsh reality –
I will leave you with the words of William Ewart Gladstone:
“If you’re cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
